Outstanding device
I've owned a kobo glow. A kobo Aura one. I've also used Kindle devices.this is by far the best one I've had yet. The screens a little smaller than my Aura one. But it's a much easier reader to hold one-handed. The other devices were little more complicated to hold one-handed. This one is also lighter and has the page turning capability buttons plus the ability to use touchscreen. It's a lot more responsive than my aura one when I go to type things in with the keyboard it works far superior. It also was easier to set up and seems to work well with kobo books Walmart books and overdrive. I highly recommend this device over any Kindle. It's reasonably priced. It came in perfect shape and Walmart shipped it in a very fast manner by FedEx. It was nice to have it right on time when they said it would be here. Order this device and you'll be happy with it.

Extremely unresponsive
I got the Kobo Libra reader because the libraries are closed and if I'm isolating inside having books to read is essential. I did my research and this one came up with great reviews so I went ahead and ordered it. It's nice to read from but I expect they're all the same so no points for that. No matter what you want to do on it this reader is so incredibly unresponsive it's nothing but annoying. It takes 5 second or longer with a really hard push just to turn it on and it doesn't get better no matter what you want to do with it. Typing anything on it is extremely difficult as well and if you want to go back to change or fix anything at all while typing then good luck with that because the cursor just won't move it's that unresponsive. Trying to remove books is a huge effort with pushing the button over and over to perform what should be a simple act. And while reading a book without any effort at all for some reason I'm unaware of because suddenly I'm skipped ahead a dozen pages and have to constantly go back and find my place. I've yet to figure that out and it's extremely frustrating to say the least. Frankly there's nothing about it's performance I like and were it not for the current situation and Walmart's return section closed until further notice I'd have already returned it. If I can still return it when things get back to normal I definitely will. It's suppose to be a new product but acts like something that's been refurbished and never was good to begin with. I'm extremely unhappy with it and NO would definitely NOT recommend it.

Nice. This is the Kobo to get.

I bought the Kobo Libra H2O. Build quality is super nice. Saw lots of reviews comment about being made of plastic. I actually love the material and how small it is for a 7 inch eReader. Feels great in my hand and better balanced and easier to hold than any Kindle that I have tried (including the Oasis similar model). Love the backlight candlelight color capability. Screen is nicely responsive including typing on the virtual keyboard. Setup was easy. Exactly what I was looking/hoping for.

Fabulous

Incredible battery life and a wonderful little product. This is my second. It's a great way to not use Amazon and to use your own epub files without any special tools. Simply drag and drop the files to the device (attached via USB). Use with Libby for library stuff, it's a slam dunk. Not too expensive and excellent "paper" quality. It's hard to not recommend. Dyslexics like me will be happy to know that the OpenDyslexic font is preinstalled so you can read easily.

Great E-book reader.

Have only had this device for a week, but I think it is great. With the software on this device, I can easily access my local library and borrow books for free. Haven't bought any books as yet, but the available list is impressive. I have been an avid user of the public library and rarely purchase books, but I like the idea that I could purchase one if I wished.

I love it

I had the Aurora H2O and it finally died they've improved the reader so much lightweight and the built in Overdrive makes it so much easier to borrow books from the library.

1. If you don't already have the Nook books downloaded prior to this year, there isn't really a way to download and convert Nook books anymore. We used to be able to with Epubor and Calibre, but Barnes and Noble Nook basically made it impossible to do that anymore. I was able to put my books I downloaded last year on it but I can't convert any more of the library because of Nook. Kindle books are still fine.
by Elizabeth
2. Amazon uses a proprietary format for all their books called .mobi. Mobi contains DRM (Digital Rights Management) which locks the book into a registered Amazon Kindle only. Books for the Kobi and Nook and other book readers are called .epub (electronic publishing). So if you own a Kindle, this book reader will not work for you. If you own a Nook, it uses the same format.
by SKeenen
3. It is capable *IF* you can find a way to download your nook books to your computer and upload them into Calibre (which you'll need to download). From Calibre, you'll remove the DRM barnes has put on their ebooks, and then you download from Calibre to your Kobo. The hard part is getting your nook books onto your computer, as barnes is very rude about this to prevent people from switching. It's one of the reasons I'm switching, and I won't do Kindle. This Kobo is the one that will finally get me to switch. If you do, you'll have to keep the nook to read your nook books (like me), as they won't transfer.

1. No, but you can easily convert and upload Kindle books to a Kobo using Calibre (free and open-source eBook management software) and the DeDRM Calibre plugin. Google for instructions or ask the Kobo reddit community for help.

2. No. Amazon uses a proprietary eBook format for its books that only works on Kindle. Barnes
